What color is your wardrobe?

There was a time when black dominated my wardrobe. Rightly or wrongly, I was led to believe black was the magic color to appear smarter and be taken more seriously at work. More importantly though, black was the perfect camouflage for that spare tire wrapped around my middle holding 3 kids worth of mommy fat.

Don’t get me wrong. Black is beautiful. I love it. But only for evening wear. For day wear, black has long ceased to be a practical color for me in my job as taxi driver to my kids.

Let me tell you, dashing in and out of the house (and sun) every other hour of the day like I do, black is a killer at absorbing heat and firing up those sweat glands. There goes my secret to staying slim without exercise 😆 . Nah, I’m only kidding.

Truth is even if I weren’t living in this perpetual sauna, black still wouldn’t be the primary color of my wardrobe. I love color too much. I mean, what’s life without color? Not much fun, right?

I love my fuchsias, turquoises, teals, pinks, purples, greens, yellows, oranges, whites and greys. Anything bright and definitive. The darker shades, the wimpy pastels, not much at all. And browns, nah, I don’t do browns. at. all.

Your turn…

    While I have a variety of colors, I love all shades blue and it’s definitely the dominate color in my wardrobe! Also, thanks for participating in our Wild Card hop. Have a great week!

    Nice to meet you. I am like you. Mostly black, to hide my tire, but am stepping out into color (little by litte) and loving it. After posting this, I’ll be your newest follower. Looking forward to more.

    Depends on the season. In autumn, I was wearing aubergines. This winter, I seem to be wearing grey suits with bright coloured tops. In summer, it’s more colourful with blues and reds.
